Asynchronous

1. In computing, describing a process that occurs independently of other processes.

2. In telecommunications, describing two signals within a network or between two networks that are sent at different times.

3. More generally, describing two or more events that occur at a different time or something that occurs at the wrong time.

Research reveals that incorporating activities that stimulate social presence into asynchronous courses is even more important that face-to-face instruction due to the isolated nature of online instruction (Richardson, Maeda, Lv, & Caskurlu, 2017; Zhan & Mei, 2013).
The practice of calculating processes in SM shows that the initial determining influence on the behavior of the motor in asynchronous mode is due to a starting winding, and therefore the accuracy of the results of the calculation depends on the adequacy of its description in the mathematical model.
Synchronous motors, as well as some of the newer generations of asynchronous systems that include a "platform motor," are certified by The European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG).
